Wednesday was the first of two days allotted for the SRI (Scholastic Reading Inventory), a test that assesses each student’s reading or Lexile level.  Though we have students that are at a variety of reading levels, the target levels for grades 6-8 are 960-1115.  The reading levels for all grade levels are below:

*Parents, ask your child for their Lexile score.  You can visit http://lexile.com/fab/ to find books at your child’s Lexile level.  The second column is where students may be “stretched” into to raise their reading prowess.  For more information on the Lexile program and to download the mobile app, visit http://lexile.com/.

As with all self-directed activities, there were students who finished early.  They were directed to visit the “Extension Work” page on my blog where they were to complete a BCR based on the video or article they viewed.  They were also given the opportunity to re-do their bumper stickers (last night’s homework) if they did not meet the expectations.

HOMEWORK: Re-do Bumper Sticker to turn in tomorrow (Thursday), Work on Create-A-Song (due Friday)
